This may be William COLE, who is listed as the owner of the farm my grandparents (Jesse and Mildred HUSCHER) bought circa 1940, called the Cole Place.

It is listed as Section 16, in township 6 south, range 3 west, in the 1885 Atlas of Cloud Co., KS edited by Jeanne Chubbuck. We have a nice etching of the Cole farm house circa 1880, showing members of the Cole family, that was found in the Cloud County Historical Society. William COLE and his family are likely listed on the 1880 and 1900 federal census, as well as the newly released Kansas State Census for Cloud Co., KS, available from the Cloud Co. Genealogical Society. I believe it is in Center township.

Topic: Carver, George W.
From: Jon
Date: Sunday, September 12, 1999 11:41 PM

12 September 1999, Jon W. Marx,

I am researching my CARVER ancestry and have recently seen reference to a book that may have relevance to my research on the CARVER surname: George W. Carver of Cloud County Kansas. His Ancestry from Robert Carver of Marshfield, Plymouth Colony and Some of His Descendants. Authors given as Renee Carver, Jenna Carver and David Carver. Vol. 1 & 2. Modesto CA. Library of Congress No. CS71.C3281983.

My great grandfather, Andrew CARVER, had an older brother George Washington CARVER who moved to Kansas, date unknown. He, Andrew, and his wife Elizabeth LICKLEY CARVER are reported to have lived in Kansas for 2 years, again dates unknown. One reasonable assumption is that they lived near brother George. Andrew and his father Increase appear to be traceable to Robert CARVER of Marshfield.

If anyone has access to this book I have two questions:

1. Are the parents of George W. given as Increase and Adah BIGELOW (or DOOLITTLE) CARVER, and father of Increase given as Aldric and Aseneth TARBOX CARVER?

2. If the answer to that question is in the affirmative, do you know where I might be able to order a copy of this set for my library?

Thank you for your assistance.

I know very little about him, other than he had sons named William and John, and most likely a son named Edward (also living in Glasco). Any information about Rev. J. Bond would be appreciated.

Topic: Dunn / Barber
From: Jody Nestler
Date: Saturday, March 06, 1999 03:47 PM

DUNN, BARBER; 3/6/99, Jody Nestler, In 1880 a John Dunn was living in Cloud County, apparently about 14 to 16 miles west from Bloom Township, Clay County where John's sister, Catherine Crooks lived with her family, her mother-in-law and her parents, Robert and Jane Barber Dunn. I have inquired in Clay County and was unable to find information about Robert or Jane's deaths. In 1880, they were 80 and 78 respectively. Am hoping to find an obituary for Jane Dunn listing her survivors. Believe her to be sister of Adam Barber who was alive and living in Meigs County, Ohio. Do death records exist from the early 1880's in Cloud County and/or are there cemetery records from that era? I note there is a Bloom Cemetery in Miltonvale NE. Is that in Cloud County? Is there anyone out there researching these families or can anyone help with my questions? Would appreciate any possible assistance.

Topic: Ora L Maddox
From: Ivan L. Saunders
Date: Tuesday, March 02, 1999 12:55 PM

I don't know if U All saw my summons for help for the missing Parentage of ORA LOGAN MADDOX. BY A STORY I RECEIVED FROM A DAU OF ORA HE HAD A BRO.. THAT LIVE IN THE THREE STATE CORNER MO. KS. OK, BUT CAME OUT OF TEXAS & OK. I am going to re post my First E-mail to the maddox Cousins rootsweb.

HI Cuz, I am looking for the missing link of Maddox in My family tree. The Maddox are a Mystery Family. The Family I am looking for are located In Idaho and Oregon now.They came out of Texas and OK. to South Dakota to Kansas(Cloud Co.) then down the Oregon Trail. When they departed the Texas, Ok area they also departed the family ties, due to some kind of family Feud This was in 1860 or abouts ??

Ora L. Maddox b. 1-8-1888 in Chamberland Brule County South Dakota d. 2-4-1959 Weiser Washington County Idaho. At this time his Parentage is Unknown, but Possibility a Mary A. was his Mother ? I did fine the location of Internment for him and his wife Treasure L ( Sevey) Maddox b.-7-7-1895 d.5-8-1932 and a Mary A Maddox b.6-14-1850 d.6-21-1924 in Mann Creek Cemetery Washington County Idaho. There were children of his and Treasures marriage 3 Boys and 1 Girl, her name is Imogene Mae ( Maddox ) Murray b.8-19-1921 Weiser Washington County Idaho. The Three boys DOB are unknown to me at this time. All the boys are living and live in Oregon and Idaho. Two Are World Champion Rodeo Cowboys (PCRA) Bull Riding and Calf Roping. Imogene is my Mother-In-Law and I and my wife Pamela have been working on the Maddox Family Tree.

There stories that Imogene was told when she was a little Girl about the Family, but the family didn't talk about the passed, and not of family. Like this Mary A. Imogene told me that she can remember her as granny, but her dad Ora didn't talk about her after her death. The One thing that I have found out is that the story about Ora's Mother & Father going to a Indian Reservation in South Dakota was true. While I was checking out the South Dakota Information I found that a Comanche girl was enrolled in the Indian School at Chamberland, her Name was Harriet Maddox and she was out of Oklahoma at the time of Ora's birth.

With more checking I found a William S Maddox b.1833 he was in the Union Army Station at Farragut Post # 52 Spearfish South Dakota. His Company was Company D 9th Ind.. Legion. He enlisted in Jennings County IND... In the South Dakota State Veterans Cemetery at Falls River Hot Springs County South Dakota The Internment of William S Maddox d. 5-30-1901 .

Now to tie this to the Ora Maddox. Imogene stated that she think her Grand Father first name was William or Willie or Wills ? That her father Ora told her that her Grand father died in the Idaho State Veterans Hospital in Boise Idaho and was taken back to South Dakota.
